These Totoro Cream Puffs Are Cute Enough To Eat. Literally.

Discovered at Shiro-Hige's Cream Puff Factory in Tokyo, these Totoro cream puffs look like something out of a Ghibli movie. They also look like something I want to eat.

The cream puffs are available in a variety of flavours, such as chocolate cream, custard, and whipped cream. There are also seasonal varieties, like strawberry cream for spring, peach for spring, and chestnut cream for fall. Each costs between ¥390 to ¥430 (US$4.99 to $US5.50).

All the cream puffs are made by hand and are only available in limited qualities. The quaint cafe is decorated with goods and posters from Ghibli movies; however, it is not officially connected with the famed anime studio. It is connected with the desire to pack those little Totoros in my belly.

    The fillings are quite nice too. I didn't quite get to have the chestnut flavour (seasonally available I believe)
    Oh and it might have helped to read the opening times and not turn up at 8 when it opens at 10 (or was it 11) - even if they aparently sell out quickly

    Something shaped like a character from a Ghibli movie looks "like something out of a Ghibli movie"? Man, what are the odds?
